World Cup of Hockey

This time of year most hockey players around the world are tuned into the World Cup of hockey. The tournament takes place in Toronto showcasing the 8 best teams in the world as they battle it out for world supremacy. The one new element added compared to years past is the inclusion of team North America. This team being players only 23 and under, is just downright fun to watch. These kids are our age and on the verge of qualifying to the semis with a record of 2-1 in round robin play. Names like Eichel and Mcdavid stand out but the depth of talent and speed has been unmatched. Nathan Mackinnon who is only 21 has particularly stood out to me with his incredible hands, making goalies look silly. It's safe to say that team North America is the most exciting team in the tournament and I think the World Cup has put together something amazing with this team included in the mix
